When Winter’s bite

Makes clear it’s first and full intent

There comes to pass a holy summer berry,

Both food and ark of life renewed.

Which eaten and dispersed, begins

The dark and bitter climb, through

Root and branch and stem

Until within the flower of year to come

It finds itself remade but one
